What is Wealth Management?
Wealth management is an investment-advisory which tackles financial planning, investment portfolio management and other types of financial services.
Individuals who have high net worth, small business owners and even families who needs the assistance of wealth management experts, can have them. The best wealth management strategies work effectively is if you have accumulated some amount of wealth.
Historically, the entry bar for having an expert was high but recently more investors are managing their own expenses therefore the entry bar has gone down and became more accessible. The net worth needed to qualify for wealth management services vary from each institution so it’s best to ask them what their requirements are first.
Some firms however, offer this service to a certain minimum amount in investments but it’s customizable to meet the specific needs of the client.
Think of wealth management as a professional, all-in-one service, for financial/investment advice, tax/accounting services and estate/legal planning and! This is definitely an added bonus, instead of seeking services from different sources amounting to higher expenses in the long run.
Can You Do this Yourself?
Absolutely. Not every person is in the position or even needs to hire an expert.
If you’re still working on building your net worth it’s a good idea to learn as much as you can now and then get help when your situation changes and you have more complex decisions to make.
There are free resources all around you that can help you learn how to manage your money, begin investing, save for your future, and optimize your taxes and more. So while you might not need expert help right now it’s good to know that you have that option in the future if you decide to go that route.
